5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Love my Implants - Kinston, NC

I had breast implants with Dr. C in 2008. He loves his work (although what man wouldn't want to be around boobs all day lol), but seriously takes his job as an art and helps 'sculpt' your body. I am very happy with the results...

Great in person. A real salesman.Staff really sweet. I've noticed over past year my breasts have begun sagging. I have to wear a bra, which supposedly would never have to again. Called office today only to find out he's retired. Sounds suspicious to me.

Love him

I flew home from Japan to have Dr Cummings do my breast augmentation. He made me feel at ease and released. I'm moving back home only to find out he retired. So sad to know he's not practicing anymore

Unbelievable and Pissed! - Kinston, NC

5 months post op I found out dr Cummings office closed!!!!!!! I'm very unhappy about this and I have question/concerns about my BA and my right breast bottoming out. I feel like lawsuits are in the near future for mr Cummings for this sudden closing with (zero notice) unexpectly leaving patients out to dry.

Extremely angry

I received a letter less than two weeks after my surgery stating that dr Cummings was retiring. That month. He should have never taken at new patients knowing and withholding this information before surgery. I have had no follow up appointments and am 3 months post op and very unhappy with my results.

1 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

28 years old 3 kids, bilateral revision may 7th 2015

Staff members extremely friendly and very informative. Dr. Cummings is nice but doesn't really listen to your needs at consultation which happens seconds before procedure. Never saw him after procedure was performed. At 3 month appt. He pretty much told me there was not much he could do to fix the issues that have arose for the second time around but quoted me 1800.00 to try again. I would not recommend anyone to his office!

23 Yrs, Flat A to Small C, Cummings Plastic in Kinston BEST DECISION EVER!!! :D - Kinston, NC

Amazing!!! He listens and is truly passionate about his work! The staff is over the top wonderful and helpful! You feel at ease and there's no rush it pressure or any uncomfortability!! They're all laid back and don't make it sound like a big scary surgery at all! And the anesthesiologist was relaxing as well! (40 years experience so I felt safe and in good hands from there consultation to the surgery)

5'8" 142 lb 510cc

I had my augmentation done 7 months ago and I absolutely LOVE my results. Dr. Cummings chose the perfect size for my body. I told him I wanted to be a full D and that's exactly what I got! I was a 34B before, and now I am a 34DDD. This was a life changing decision. I feel comfortable with my body now, I am no longer self conscious being naked in front of my husband! This was the best...
